Fantasy's island

Posted on Wed, Sep 20, 2006 at 8:43 PM

Final Fantasy won the inaugural Polaris Prize on Monday.

I was honoured to be part of the initial selection process, which was over 100 journalists across the country each pitching their top 5 albums, with the top 10 vote getters comprising the nominee list. (My number one pick was Sarah Harmer's I'm A Mountain, which was ultimately, deservedly nominated.)

Owen Pallett is now $20,000 richer. Congrats sir.

What should be done with the dead agave plant?

  • Chop it up and chase it with lime and salt
  • Cast it in bronze and put it where Cornwallis was
  • Burn it ritually for biomass
  • Plant it in every white girl's succulent garden
